Vince's Trans-continental Trip
17 May 2005 - Tuesday
The week before I left was insanely busy. I had two finals and two major projects
due. In addition I had to pack for this trip, and also for the
move to my new apartment upon my return.
The morning of the 17th I had a 9am final. After that I dropped off the
completed take-home final, closed out my office
(the CSL group is moving buildings over the summer so I
had to pack that up too) and hit the road. I was not finished
with the writeup for the other final project;
I ended up doing that on-the-road while Kristina was driving.
I don't have any exciting pictures from this day, and I know
everyone is really here for the pictures. Here's an interesting
picture from a few weeks before. What you are seeing is a weird form of
precipitation known as
. It's not hail or sleet, but something similar. It was quite
noisy and it was coating the ground before it melted.
